First you need to caramelize the sugar and then pour it on the baking tray and arrange bananas on top of it.Then pour the batter of banana cake over it and bake!The aroma while baking was incredibly good!The cake was super soft with the bite of chocolates and flavours of banana!

  • 3 Bananas, sliced about 1/2” thick

5) Add the flour, baking powder along with the milk and mix until it comes together.

6) Pour the batter over the banana and caramel layer, carefully transfer to the oven and bake for about 30 to 40 minutes (it might take a little more or less time just keep an eye on it) or until fully cooked through.

7) Remove from the oven, allow it to sit for exactly 5 minutes, then invert it carefully on a platter
